PH10 PLUS motorised indexing heads

The range of PH10 PLUS motorised probe heads increases throughput by giving automated CMMs the added capability of program controlled probe re-orientation. This enables the inspection of features at different angles without the need for frequent, time consuming stylus cluster changes.

PH10M PLUS with part

The range comprises three PH10 PLUS models, each of which can carry a range of probes and extensions and can be orientated in 720 repeatable positions, giving access to the most difficult-to-reach workpiece features.

All three variants of the new PH10 PLUS heads are now supplied with a revised repeatability specification, down from 0.5 µm (2σ) to just 0.4 µm (2σ) (specified at a distance of 62 mm), giving users improved positioning at the stylus tip. The new specification heads are physically differentiated by a new ‘aqua blast' finish which gives a modern, matt black appearance.

PH10M PLUS

PH10M PLUS

 The PH10M PLUS can carry long extension bars and complex probes such as SP25M or TP7M. The highly repeatable autojoint allows rapid probe or extension bar changing without the need for re-qualification.

PH10MQ PLUS

PH10MQ PLUS

 The PH10MQ PLUS is a variant of the PH10M PLUS that allows the motorised head to be attached directly to the quill with the B-axis of the head inside the quill itself. This option provides a neater and shorter probe mount, with only the A-axis protruding from the quill.

PH10T PLUS

PH10T PLUS

 The PH10T PLUS is similar to the PH10M PLUS, except that it features an M8 thread probe mount in place of the autojoint.

All M8 threaded probes, such as TP20 and TP200, and extension bars fit directly onto the head. The PH10T PLUS is fully compatible with all of Renishaw's stylus and module change systems.
